Joshaqan is my second pair of socks from Silk Road Socks by Hunter Hammersen. I love this book. It has seriously great sock patterns in it. I also really love these socks. I'm using Skinny Bugga! in Bog Fritillary, which is a beautiful golden brown color. While the knitting is slow going because of the cables, I think they are going to turn out great.

I finished my Khotans!!! They are absolutely gorgeous. I guess it is the second pair of patterned socks I've knitted, but these were way more involved than the first ones. I am so proud of myself. Now I'm going to knit another pair from that book.

In celebration of this knitting triumph, and recent birthday, I rewarded myself with a new knitting book, Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson. Now, I'm really a cuff-down sock knitter, but I thought it would check it out. I read about the book in the KnitPicks catalog, then I checked it on amazon, reading all the reviews, and decided to give toe-up socks another try. But not with short row heels, please. They worked ok for anklets, but ick on the full sock.
Tomorrow, I'm off to learn intarsia.

Onto the yarn problem: While sewing together a knitted bag made with Lamb's Pride, my sewing yarn kept getting untwisted and breaking. I think the string was too long and there was too much friction from the sewing. Still, I've never had that problem.

Yeah. I'm also working on a bag and a baby sweater.
